A Rich History
As the Barossa’s oldest public building, the Chapel’s history forms part of a rich tapestry of local church activities from the time of settlement. Built in 1844 to provide a place of worship for people of all denominations, this church became a meeting place for many years before falling into a state of disrepair and being uitlised as a farm building.
Restored in 1989-1994 as a Bi-centennial project to commemorate the local pioneering spirit and religious freedom, the Chapel’s rejuvenation saw it added to the Register of State Heritage in 1993. Since then this unique public building has become a much-loved destination for locals and visitors looking to celebrate milestones in an historic setting.
